All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This pairing of Ladysmith Black Mambazo with the strings of the English Chamber Orchestra conducted by composer Ralf Gothoni is a seamless collaboration that has the sweeping, gentle folk melodies of the townships at its heart. Some of the songs here originate from that tradition, while others, such as Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," Mozart's "Ave Verum Corpus," and Schubert's "Sanctus," are revised and reshaped according to the sweetness inherent in South African vocal music. Also included are a deeply moving reading of "Amazing Grace" and many Joseph Shabalala songs, including "Homeless," written with Paul Simon. This is a stirring, quiet, dignified album that offers...

    South African melodies + Orchestral arrangements = Musical Masterpieces!!

    As a big fan of Ladysmith Black Mambazo's South African melodies, I usually play their CDs every so often - to think of Africa (where I worked for years!) After finding 'No Boundaries' at our local B&N, however, I play this one EVERY DAY. No kidding. It's really special the way the composer combines Ladysmith Black Mambazo's unique sound with orchestral scores and also weaves them into traditional choral music (Dona nobis pacem is a favorite!) Evidently the English Chamber Orchestra arrived in S. Africa for an international music festival awhile back - the result is this awesome collaboration. I recently gave this as a birthday gift to my sister (who loves it!) but the big surprise is that my brother-in-law (who is not "mr. music") really, REALLY loves it & has already started hinting around about his upcoming birthday for more LBM!

    Sweet Music

    The smooth vocals of the South African group Ladysmith Black Mambazo coupled with the grandeur of the strings orchestra (i.e., the English Chamber Orchestra) makes for some mighty sweet listening. Sounds like sweet church music done right.
